My wife won a Zune 120 GB Digital Media Player tonight and I’m looking for some tips and advice on how to get the most out of it. I downloaded a DVD conversion tool from Cucusoft and attempted to burn a DVD to WMA format. This worked (aside from an annoying Trial Version pasted smack in the middle of the screen) but it’s only utilizing a small portion of the screen when I upload it to the Zune. I think I selected Windows Media v9 format when I did the conversion…so obviously this was the wrong thing to do. It took hours however so I’m looking for some advice on what tools to use and what format will get the best out of this thing.
Also, any links to games or other cool things I can put on this would be greatly appreciated. I’ve never messed with one of these things before (I have an iPod Nano and a phone…that’s the extent of my gadget collection atm. I figure I do this stuff for a living, last thing I want to do is mess with technology aside from games on MY time :))…so any tips would also be appreciated. Took me 15 minutes to figure out how to put the freaking video on the Zune from my computer (probably would have helped if I had RTFM…but who has time for that?).
